If you want to get virgin points then this is a good choice. I fly mostly virgin and this gets me 1 point for every dollar. It does have the restriction that stops you earning as many points after you spend $1500 in a month but you still earn points after that.

Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Credit Card

Don’t you just love a great offer? Whether it’s the perfect pair of shoes that just happen to be on sale, or a buy-one-get-one-free offer on, well pretty much anything. When it comes to credit cards, you can find special offers all over the place. But while some of them certainly are great, some of them are not so special.

Luckily for us, the current offer on the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Credit Card fits firmly in the former category. Not only can you benefit from 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months, you can also earn 20,000 bonus points, you pay only $50 annual fee and you can earn an exclusive $129 Virgin Australia Gift Voucher, each year.

Phew. I think we might need to sit down.

Want to find out what else the card has to offer? Let’s take a look.

What we love...

First up, let’s look more closely at the card’s awesome introductory offers. This is a super long balance transfer offer, giving you a massive 18 months to pay down your transferred balance. If you are not moving over a balance and are looking to spend on the card there is another intro offer available - annual fee of $50.

When we’re talking frequent flyer cards, we usually expect to pay a substantial annual fee. Comparable frequent flyer cards include the NAB Velocity Rewards Credit Card and the ANZ Frequent Flyer Card (which earns Qantas Frequent Flyer Points), both with an annual fee of $95. Yes, we know that these cards have a lower standard annual fee, but the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Credit Card has a trick up its sleeve.

As a cardholder, you can receive a $129 Virgin Australia Gift Voucher, each year. All you need to do to unlock this offer is make a retail purchase on your card within two months prior to requesting your voucher. You can then use the voucher when booking Virgin Australia flights (including sale fares) or selected Virgin Australia Holidays packages, any time within six months of the voucher issue date.

Want more? You got it. Let’s talk earn rates. You’ll earn 0.66 Velocity Points per $1 spent up to $1500 per month, then 0.5 Velocity Points thereafter. And the big bonus? You can also earn three bonus Velocity Points on top of your standard earn rates for every $1 spent in your first three months (capped at 10,000 bonus Points per month).

What’s not so great...

As with any balance transfer offer, it’s best to pay off the transferred balance before the intro period ends. This is most definitely the case with the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Credit Card, as the balance transfer rate reverts to the cash rate of 20.99% p.a. at the end of the intro period.

It’s also worth noting that it features a purchase rate of 20.74% p.a., which could get pretty darn expensive if you carry a balance on this card.

Why should you choose this card?

This card would be a fantastic option if you want to pay off a substantial balance on an existing card. We think 0% p.a. on balance transfers for 18 months is a pretty good deal indeed. But, with its high balance transfer and purchase rates, be sure to pay off that transferred balance and any purchases before they start attracting interest.

If you’re looking for an affordable card that offers decent Points-earning potential – and you happen to like flying Virgin – then this could be the ideal choice. You can earn Points for everyday spending on the card, and higher Points when spending with Virgin Australia. Plus, you benefit from that enviable three month bonus Points offer.

Any other nifty features? You can enjoy complimentary transit accident insurance, Pricing Guarantee on purchases, and up to four additional cardholders at $39 each.

Overall Rating

Awesome intro offer on an affordable Velocity frequent flyer card. Gift voucher offer, 20,000 bonus points and $50 annual fee ongoing, plus other extras such as decent Points-earning potential for everyday spending.

I'm looking at this card for the 0% balance transfer, there is no transfer fee, 18months to pay it back and $50 annual fee, what is the minimum monthly repayment for this service?

i am looking at doing a balance transfer and looking for a great option credit card with minimal fee's. ideally would like it paid around the 12 month mark. ill be setting a weekly payment plan. what other credit card options are available?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    7 June 2019
    Hi Daniel, if you can pay it off in 12 months then a balance transfer offer that has $0 annual fee first year could work. I do like the Virgin Flyer offer with a $50 annual fee if you think you will need up to 18 months to pay off. For a 12 month balance transfer, an offer like the HSBC Qantas Platinum could work well. It has no balance transfer or annual fee the first year, thus minimizing fees. This card also has some other great features and Qantas points earning. Let me know if this offer doesn't suit and I can suggest something else.

    Hi Anthony, this card earns Velocity points. That is, you can use your points to book flights with Virgin Australia, Tigerair, Delta Air Lines, Singapore Airlines, Silk Air, Virgin Atlantic, Hong Kong Airlines, Etihad Airways, South African Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, Capital Airlined, Hainan Airlines, Tianjin Airlines, Alitalia and FlyPelican. The Velocity program is very flexible with flight redemption.

Hi, I have a credit score of 550 and just starting out again. Which card do you think is my best option?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    27 May 2019
    Hi Alex, approval will depend on a range of factors. This Virgin card with a reduced annual fee is a good offer. If you want to earn Velocity points and have a low annual fee. This could be the right card for you. It does have high standard interest. Therefore you will need to pay off the card in full each month to afford paying interest. As long as you feel you can do this and you meet all the minimum requirement. Then I think this card could be fine to apply for.

    Roland

    8 May 2019
    Hi Senthilvelan, just checking, it looks like Virgin do not accept applications from temporary residents. Have a look at the ANZ low rate balance transfer. ANZ will accept temp residents and NAB credit card debt, subject to credit approval.

I wanted to get this card to payoff my existing virgin credit card. can fund be transferred to my existing virgin card?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    29 April 2019
    Hi Davood, no, a balance transfer must be between different banks. Virgin cards are issued through Citi. Therefore you need to select a non-Citi issued credit card to transfer any current balance. Something like the HSBC Platinum with 0% for 22 months and no balance transfer fee could work.

Hi, I would like to transfer my $2000 credit card (currently maxed out) and I would like $3000 more. So a total of $5000. Can I do this?
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    18 March 2019
    Hi Michelle, the minimum credit limit on this card is $6,000. Therefore if you are approved this would be the starting limit. Being maxed out is not a good sign to lenders. Though your 2k limit is small and therefore may not be an issue. I suggest that people should apply for a balance transfer when they are at maximum 85% of their credit limit. Though there are so many factors for approval. This Virgin card is issued through Citi. Therefore your current card needs to be outside of Citi to be able to transfer debt from it.

I have existing card with 10500 limit I wonder if I can balance transfer 15000 from my wife card with current 18 moths balance transfer offer.
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    25 February 2019
    Hi Lettish, a balance transfer must be between the same legal person. You cannot balance transfer your wife's credit card debt to an offer you apply for. Your wife will need to get her own balance transfer offer. A longer way around could be for you to pay her card(s) out with a personal loan. Then look to later transfer that loan debt (non-Citi issued) to a Citi issued balance transfer offer.

Why do u charge 3% on foreign transaction when one is overseas and has to utilise the card to pay for a purchase or bill payment? The whole point of having a credit card is to pay for ur purchases (excluding cash advance) What airline airport lodge access privileges
    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    18 February 2019
    Hi Mahinder, if you spend regularly in other currencies or overseas then a non-foreign fee card makes sense. If you are overseas and make bill payments to an Australian business in AUD. You should not get charged a foreign fee. There is no lounge access with this card. Have a look at the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure. You can auto-convert to Velocity points. No foreign fees, no overseas cash advance fees, good insurance suite.

    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    31 January 2019
    Hi Maretina, yes you do. For the first 3 months you actually get 3 bonus points per $1 spent, capped at 10,000 points per month. This is on top of any standard earn rates on the card.

    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    12 December 2018
    Hi Abe, you can only transfer non-Citi loans to this offer. Virgin credit cards are issued through Citi. Citi are the only credit card issuer that will accept loans as part or all of the transfer. Naturally this is subject to credit approval. Best of luck with your application.

    Roland B Bleyer - CreditCard.com.au Founder

    Roland

    4 December 2018
    Hi Peter, to get approved for a new credit card you will need good credit. With bad credit it is very unlikely that you would be able to get any credit card. Virgin require very good credit to get approved. If you have paid or unpaid defaults on your credit file it will make approval very difficult.

    Hi Senthilvelan, just checking, it looks like Virgin do not accept applications from temporary residents. Have a look at the ANZ low rate balance transfer. ANZ will accept temp residents and NAB credit card debt, subject to credit approval.

    Hi Davood, no, a balance transfer must be between different banks. Virgin cards are issued through Citi. Therefore you need to select a non-Citi issued credit card to transfer any current balance. Something like the HSBC Platinum with 0% for 22 months and no balance transfer fee could work.

Hi, I would like to transfer my $2000 credit card (currently maxed out) and I would like $3000 more. So a total of $5000. Can I do this?

    Hi Michelle, the minimum credit limit on this card is $6,000. Therefore if you are approved this would be the starting limit. Being maxed out is not a good sign to lenders. Though your 2k limit is small and therefore may not be an issue. I suggest that people should apply for a balance transfer when they are at maximum 85% of their credit limit. Though there are so many factors for approval. This Virgin card is issued through Citi. Therefore your current card needs to be outside of Citi to be able to transfer debt from it.

I have existing card with 10500 limit I wonder if I can balance transfer 15000 from my wife card with current 18 moths balance transfer offer.

    Hi Lettish, a balance transfer must be between the same legal person. You cannot balance transfer your wife's credit card debt to an offer you apply for. Your wife will need to get her own balance transfer offer. A longer way around could be for you to pay her card(s) out with a personal loan. Then look to later transfer that loan debt (non-Citi issued) to a Citi issued balance transfer offer.

Why do u charge 3% on foreign transaction when one is overseas and has to utilise the card to pay for a purchase or bill payment? The whole point of having a credit card is to pay for ur purchases (excluding cash advance) What airline airport lodge access privileges

    Hi Mahinder, if you spend regularly in other currencies or overseas then a non-foreign fee card makes sense. If you are overseas and make bill payments to an Australian business in AUD. You should not get charged a foreign fee. There is no lounge access with this card. Have a look at the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure. You can auto-convert to Velocity points. No foreign fees, no overseas cash advance fees, good insurance suite.

    Hi Maretina, yes you do. For the first 3 months you actually get 3 bonus points per $1 spent, capped at 10,000 points per month. This is on top of any standard earn rates on the card.

    Hi Tracey, every credit card provider is going to do a credit check as part of the application process. You will need to have good credit to get approved for a new credit card.

Can you balance transfer any line of credit (personal loan) or just credit cards

    Hi Abe, you can only transfer non-Citi loans to this offer. Virgin credit cards are issued through Citi. Citi are the only credit card issuer that will accept loans as part or all of the transfer. Naturally this is subject to credit approval. Best of luck with your application.

Please help with a credit card I was hoping my bad credit you’s will still help

    Hi Peter, to get approved for a new credit card you will need good credit. With bad credit it is very unlikely that you would be able to get any credit card. Virgin require very good credit to get approved. If you have paid or unpaid defaults on your credit file it will make approval very difficult.
